Summer Transfer Window 2018.


Recommended Posts

The worst window was the one where we thought we could stay in the Premier League by signing Justin Hoyte, Marvin Emnes and Didier Digard. That one was an absolute cracker. Our last attempt at the Premier League wasn't far behind that one either.

Boro have completed the deal for Mo Besic, at this stage I could not tell you if it's a loan or a permanent deal as both plates were spinning. But at the very least he is a Boro player and will be until the end of the season. Also told there could be one more addition!!!

Did we let the big Aussie go that year too? Or was that the one before?

The January window last time in the Prem was pretty abysmal. Guediora and Bamford to come in and save us.

Well played Boro.

 

Worst transfer window I can remember. What the hell has happened to the 40m we just got in?

 

Signing half the SPL for decent fees and huge wages was the worst. Closely followed by the January one after when we got Killen, Flood & Barry Robson

 

Emnes, hoyte and digard while in the prem was worse still.

Hope this is true!!

"So Barça trebled their money on Yerry Mina after seven months and four starts. Pretty good business that."

 

Nice work Everton!

 

Clubs abroad see the Premier League clubs coming from miles away.

 

Danish club Midtjylland signed Sørloth for 250k before selling him to Palace six months later for almost 13 million. I’ll be surprised if he scores a single goal in the Prem :) a desperate Prem club is like stealing candy dead puppy.

    • I just can't see where the money is going to come from judging from the club accounts and Bulkhauls horrendous year. Unless sales are happening
    • As mentioned above I do feel the lack of depth and quality in the first half of the season had an impact with us unable to rotate and rest players in our squad meaning we struggled in the 2nd half of the season. The likes of Mcnair were playing 4 games in 8-9 days with the international breaks but we didn't have any option to rest him given injuries and lack of quality to cover him. I think we were only a point off Watford when we got to January. Unfortunately our 3 loanees came with a lack of match sharpness requiring time to settle and then we lost the likes of Tav Dijksteel and Fry at important parts of the season. I agree with the second part I do worry with giving Warnock significant money considering he has probably got no more than 12 months left with us. It would be a huge gamble and if it goes wrong it sets us back another few years. However we need a fair few signings to even get on par regarding the standard of our squad for this season.   
    • We were certainly worse after January but the 3 players we brought in hardly kicked a ball in the first half of the season and required several weeks if not months to get up to standard. I feel if they had all joined in the summer it would have eased the burden on the squad by giving us more depth and quality after a few weeks of the season. It would have eased the pressure and overplaying the likes of Taverner who ended up getting injured with nobody to come in to effectively replace him. I think our poor form in the 2nd half of the season would have been impacted by 'burnout' when you think about the amount of games several players were having to play. Howson and Mcnair examples of players who struggled towards the end of season. I do worry for next season though as we are going to need at least 6-7 new signings to replace what we have lost and probably a couple more on top of that to be seen as a strengthened team unless our academy players are able to make the step up. Im not sure I have faith in us completing so many signings this summer.  
    • The point being none settled in and we just got worse as the season rolled on and finally give up. A centre back is not what we needed but a new manager. How the hell SG can put faith and money in NW is simply financial suicide.  
    • Withered is very polite way of putting it, I would say we crashed landed with a large thump. What gets me is NW blamed the very signings he made and then concludes the fans will be happy. Not only that he hopes with new signings to finish 10th or possibly above. Setting the bar so low is hardly away to get fans buzzing and parting with money, it’s hardly worth bothering with next season.
